Mendoza's iconography and an elusive lithographer: A. Torrecillas.

By Abel Alexander

The discovery of a view of the city of Mendoza, apparently taken in the days prior to the earthquake that devastated it in 1861, confronted us with an enigma of Cuyo iconography: two panoramic views of that author are known and one of them has been used especially by a good part of the scholars who in the last ninety years dealt with that cataclysm, but without providing references on this A. Torrecillas. For our part, we turned to the photographic historian Abel Alexander and his text revealed the unknown

A modern French artist in Argentina: Andrée Moch (1879-1953)

By Georgina Gluzman

The trajectory of Andrée Moch (1879-1953) has suffered a double denial in the histories of Argentine art, due to her condition as a woman and a migrant, incapable of being "absorbed" by the nationalist discourses that have structured the discipline...

Five hundred years later, Mexico rewrites its history.

By Gilberto Ramírez Toledadon

The dawn of August 13, 1521 -500 years ago- not only brought with it the first light for a world that was slowly dying out, but also illuminated the faith of the Mexican Tenochca and Tlatelolcas who honorably defended the imminent fall of their prodigious twin cities

Collecting is a passion, an art

We started our journey in February 1993 with the launch of the magazine Manos Artesanas. Since then we have developed numerous projects aimed at popular arts, bibliophilia, photography, and as of 2017 we implemented the area of arts and crafts auctions. Along this path, the pandemic forced us to build an Online Auction program on our website. We started in April 2020 and we have not stopped the march since then. For each edition we select a set of original, rare, curious and special works; all collectibles. Once studied, they become part of the catalogs, they do so in the expectation of continuing their course to other destinations in each auction.

We also have a Direct Sales area, with the works accompanied by your Studio.

To preview the new catalog:

Here, and as a preview, we invite you to take these virtual tours that anticipate the next face-to-face visits. They awaken emotions and educate us, let us let ourselves be carried away by this route of dreams.
